‘Durola’ – PVP certificate number 201300085
‘Durola’ is a near-homozygous winter rapeseed cultivar with industrial rapeseed seed oil and canola-quality (i.e., less than 30 μmol g-1 of total seed meal glucosinolates in defatted seed meal) seed meal, selected for high adaptability to the dryland and irrigated regions of the inland Pacific Northwest. After fall seeding, ‘Durola’ seedlings emerged quickly and produce a good fall stand which was better than ‘Bridger’ and ‘Dwarf Essex’. ‘Durola’ showed significantly better winter-hardiness than ‘Bridger’, which tends to have poor winter hardiness. Flower bloom dates of’ Durola’ were 125 Julian days, which was significantly later than ‘Bridger’ and earlier than ‘Dwarf Essex’.
